governor romney, that president obama's policies have not slowed iran's nuclear march. >> let me be clear: america wants to resolve this issue through diplomacy. we believe this is still time and space to do so. that time is not unlimited. make no mistake, a nuclear armed iran is not a challenge that can be contained. it would threaten the security of israel and the stability of the global economy. that's why the united states will do what we must to prevent iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. >>shepard: the president has been under fire for not meeting with binyamin netanyahu or any world leaders. despite multiple requests from netanyahu, the president did not set a red line on iran's nuclear activities. that takes us to our chief white house corporate following the president on the campaign trail. the president says the united states will always stand up for freedom. there are limits to america's influence. >>reporter: it is rare to have the two major candidates in the same city, a mile and a half apart. the president is at the u.n. mitt romney was at the clinton global initiative. th

was just junk. here comes neil cavuto. >>neil: hello, ohio. rebound and mitt romney, a partisan blitz, a state where the polls show the president now winning in a walk. for now. maybe because ohio's economy is on something of a tear right now. unemployment is well below the national average. business formation well above the national average. never mine the republican governor of the state, on wants to take a bow, a lot of business owners across the country did not get the memo. welcome, everyone, glad to have you. so much for voters in ohio swinging the president's way. to hear the c.e.o.'s of some of the largest companies in america, this recovery still is not. not swinging. not moving. not worth investing. seven out of ten expect hiring in the last three months of the year to be flat or lower. all of the expiring bush tax cuts that have not been addressed by either party have not lifted their spirits higher. way beyond ohio, more signs that americans in general are behind the eight ball. today the household income dropped more than 8 percent since the president took office. the pol
. specifically on what the governor -- former governor massachusetts, mitt romney, and president barack obama had said yesterday. specifically yesterday said -- specifically we want your general level confidence in each candidate on the area of foreign policy. here are the numbers to call. for democrats, 202-737-0001. for republicans, 202-737-0002. for independents, 202-628-0205. if you would like to take part in the program, there are different ways to do that. twitter.com/c-spanwj,an.o facebook.com or e-mail at journal@c-span.org. "the baltimore sun" encapsulate the speeches yesterday. they pointed out that president barack obama made an impassioned defense of the expression of freedom worldwide. mitt romney urged other nations to emulate the free economy and suggested that the obama leadership in the middle east has been inadequate and reactive. this is a short piece to start us off from the president at united nations yesterday, talking about the middle east.

very close along those lines. right now, though, for the moment, the race looks like mitt romney is slipping and obama is in front. >>neil: i was talking about an easy electoral win to the president if you buy the polls, and i don't, but the popular vote is tight. on to what is happening in the swing states, republican governors like to point out and we will elaborate on that, wait a minute. we are running these states, you are seeing the improvements in a last them because republican governors are exacting the changes. what do you say do that? >>guest: it complicates mitt romney's tack. he is trying to make the case that obama is not good for the economy and we are worse off than four years ago but in a lot of states, in florida rick scott and in ohio, john kasich, they have unemployment rates under the national average. romney has had his message undercut. >>neil: where does that come? when times are good the incumbent benefits and the times are bad, he doesn't. the governor is not inconsequential although he or should be in the scheme of things, if they are not up for election
toss upstate, president obama and governor romney both campaigning in the same battleground state today. we'll take you straight to ohio and talk about the strategies there, plus violent protests in two european capitols. latest fall outs from efforts to slash out of control government spending. what the street battles you're seeing across the pond there mean for our economic future. and finding justice for an american couple murdered in a tropical paradise. it's all happening now. and back to the big story of the day, iranian mahmoud ahmadinejad getting set to address the u.n. general assembly. hello, everyone, i'm arthe arthel nevel in for jenna lee. jon: i'm jon scott. mahmoud ahmadinejad delivering what is expected to be his final speech to the u.n. as president of the islamic republic. this caps a week of belligerent receipt particular. on tuesday he called for a new world order, free from what he calls american bullying. all this has governor mitt romney and the republican national committee hit the president hard on foreign policy, releasing a scathing attack being the president'
. but it sounds tough. however, mitt romney isn't buying it. >> the president has not drawn us further away from a nuke leer iran. in fact, iran is closer to having a weapon, closer to having nuclear capability than when he took office. this is the greatest failure of his presidency. >> bill: in a time economy is dominating the campaign in the usa, it's worth noting that we americans remain in danger from muslim fanatics like ahmadinejab. and that danger must, note the word, be dealt with. according to a new rasmussen poll, 45% of likely machine voters believe u.s. muslim relations are worse now than four years ago. just 18% say relations are better. that would seem to indicate a failure in the obama foreign policy. yet the president will point to the did he say mation of al-qaeda and the killing of bin laden to persuade voters he is not soft on the jihad. to be fair to president obama, opinions about his muslim outreach are inconclusive at this point. most americans don't want war with iran because that would send oil prices and possibly lead to world war 3. there is no way on this earth that i
and begin transfers without further delay. mitt romney has released a limited set a personal tax records following months of public criticism. romney's 2011 tax return shows he paid an effective tax rate of 14% last year on gross income of $13.7 million. but the return also shows romney gave $1.75 million in charitable deductions so as to not to contradict his claims he's never paid below 13%. keeping the deductions would have meant a tax rate of 10%. but for going them also contradicts his previous statement that he would not be qualified to be president had he ever paid more taxes than he owed. all the romney continued his refusal to release full tax returns from previous years, a letter from his accountants say he paid a tax rate from 1990 through 2009 of at least 13.66%. speaking on fox news, the former white house press secretary robert gibbs criticized romney's secrecy on his tax returns. >> he gave his account to 20 years and give the american people 2. what is he hiding? why does he have corporations and bermuda, investments in the cayman islands? why is a man who says they're go
>> eric: the first presidential debate coming up in 72 hours -- obama, romney, fox, we'll be on it. >> jamie: it's the place to be. have a great day. shannon bream takes it away. >> stagnation versus growth, dependency versus opportunity and upward mobility. that's the classic choice, clear difference that we are offering. >> the three days until the first presidential debate. both candidates will be stepping off the campaign trail. get ready. it's a tight race in key battleground states and that has many republicans calling for romney go on offense, when he takes the stage on wednesday in denver. we begin america's news headquarters with carl cameron. we understand that romney is prepare for example wednesday's debate. any word on when we can expect. >> reporter: he's been preparing, arguably for seven years or more, but very, very aggressive in the last few months. he will go mind the doors and do additional rehearsing, talking with the staff about how to do this. the evolution has changed a little bit. he has been doing a lot of mock debates with ohio senator rob portman, thrs b
numbers that the fight for president obama and mitt romney remains close days away from the first presidential debate. "wall street journal" marist poll showing the president has a seven point edge in new hampshire and smaller two point lead in north carolina and nevada. that is within the poll's margin of error. meantime new "fox news" polling showing governor romney is losing some ground to president obama among likely voters nationwide. the president, now leading, compared to how things stood before the conventions, when governor romney held a slight edge. joining me now to talk about it with his take, stephen hayes, columnist for "the weekly standard." so since the convention, steven, you know the president has increased his overall lead by five points, yet huge numbers of likely voters, want to show you this, 73%, think that many policies need to change. how is it possible, i mean that's a big number, 73%. how is it possible that an incumbent leads when so many voters want change? >> isn't that an absolutely fascinating result? putting those two poll numbers up against one an
romney shut be scare the because a reliable barometer just turned bad for him. stocks closing out the trading month up and the latest quarter up a lot more. the dow, despite today's soft performance, surging 2 percent this month, almost double that in the last three months. stronger quarterly gains for the s&p 500 and nasdaq which means in an election year, good for the incumbent almost every election year. 39 days out, does that mean that the president is in? our market watcher says no, not when you factor the recent state of bad economic numbers. or the scores of major u.s. companies throwing workers out. larry, which is the more dominant theme? >>guest: just to illustrate that point, look no further than a country like greece on the verge of a depression, 25 percent unemployment, civil unrest, yet their stock market is up almost as much as our stock market. it shows you how disconnected main street has become from wall street in this committee. the reason for that is because of unprecedented central bank easing. that is what we are seeing. that is playing out in storms around -
: the poll that is not getting out, the one where mitt romney is leading, leading, among ns and by a lot. our pollster is here to say this election is not over because independents are not moving over to the president as much as you think. break this down. what is it telling us? >>guest: well, from what we have seen in a number of polls particularly in the battle ground states where the parties are evenly balanced, the independent voters are leaning slightly toward mitt romney. we see it in florida where some polls have them up 44-40. another has romney up 49-46. in ohio he is up just barely with independents and in new hampshire he is up 4 points among independents. what we see is that there are two things that have to lap to win an election. first, you have to mobilize your supporters to get out and vote. second, you have to sway those independents much in the united states, even people who are independent tend to lean either the republican side or democratic side. back if 2008, the independents who leaned democrat were to borrow a phrase ready to go, voting if high numbers. more than repub
, afghanistan, and president obama is trashing mitt romney. let's take a listen. >> would it be disastrous for the country if mitt romney were elected? >> well, you know, i think america is so strong and we've got so much going for us, that we can survive a lot. but the american people don't want to just survive. we want everybody to thrive. we want folks to have a shot at success. and so the question then just becomes whose policies are more lookly to lead us to where we want to go. >> obviously in this campaign season, this is where the candidates are going. they're going to the "the view," the jay leno show" or "the daily show." president obama got rid of bin laden, he end the the war in afghanistan and iraq. it just seemed weird that he had a world stage to show how important he was as a world statesman and here he is talk on "the view." >> are there any big accomplishments that come out of these meetings? he is getting a lot of criticism over this but what's the outcome anyway? >> if you look at some of the issues out there and you saw what happened last week, raging protests in pakis

romney on where america stands. that's first from fox this tuesday night. the leader of the free world and the man who wants his job delivered big speeches today. this morning governor mitt romney addressed the crowd at the clinton global initiative here in new york city. while just across town at the united nations, president obama spoke before the united nations general assembly. it was his final u.n. address of this term. and the problems in and around the middle east dominated both speeches as the president and governor romney addressed everything from iran's nuclear program to the attack that killed our ambassador in libya. ed henry is our chief white house correspondent and toking president obama. both men really duking it out on foreign policy all of a sudden. >> that's right. one city, two candidates and two different visions. it's clear that mitt romney is charging that the president is sitting on the side line, not active enough in the middle east. the president, as you noted, his suggestion is look, you can't dictate the facts on the ground in the middle east. some of this h
opponent mitt romney cited the same issues before the clinton global initiative conference in new york. but romney implied the real problem is a failure of u.s. leadership. >> a lot of americans are troubled by developments in the middle east. syria has witnessed the killing of tens of thousands of people. the president of egypt is a member of the muslim brotherhood. our ambassador to libya was assassinated in a terrorist attack. iran is moving toward nuclear weapons capability. >> woodruff: romney used tougher language yesterday in pueblo, colorado. then he criticized the president's remarks in his 60 minutes interview that the arab spring brought many challenges for the u.s. and that there would be bumps in the road. >> these are not bumps in the road. these are human lives. these are developments we do not want to see. this is time for the president who will shape events in the middle east not just be merciful or be at mercy to the events in the middle east. >> woodruff: the president also spoke before the clinton global initiative today, but he did not meet with any foreign leaders
attacks against our ambassador and three americans. bill: governor mitt romney now talking taxes laying out the specifics of his tax plan last night on "60 minutes". the republican nominee said he will cut rates for everyone but that doesn't necessarily mean your bill will drop. listen. >> all the rates come down but lest people think there will be huge reduction in the taxes we owe that is not the case. we'll limit deductions and exemptions particularly for people at the high end because i want to keep the current progressivety from the code. there is no tax reduction for high income people. i would like to get a tax deduction for middle mcfamilies by eliminating the tax on middle income families on capital gains. bill: there is lot spoken on the 30 second sound bite. stuart good morning to you. >> good morning bill. bill: size up what he said than he have two specifics. >> you can't reduce this to a simple one-liner. this is not herman cain's 9-9-9. there is no easy way to reduce what governor romney has to say about taxes and tax reform into an easy one-liner. here is what you can sa

about that. so now you have a choice. governor romney wants to reverse that progress. i have a different view. unlike my opponent, i am not going to let oil companies write this country's energy plan and am not going to let them collect $4 ilion from our taxpayers. they do not need it. -- four billion dollars from our taxpayers. they do not need it. they're making money every time you go to the pump. let's take that money and invest -- in the wind and solar i wind and solar. let's put construction workers back to work retrofitting our buildings and our homes so they energy.sess we can create hundreds of thousands of new jobs and improve our economy, and we can cut in half our oil imports by 2020. that is the goal i am setting. that is what we are fighting for. that is why i am running for a second term. i want to make sure everybody in america gets a great education. everybody. education was the gateway of opportunity for me. it is the only reason i am standing here. i was not born to wealth for fame but i got a great education. the same thing for michelle, the same thing for a lot of yo
the credentials of romney and therefore it turns into a choice and i think in that case the president is doing very well. i never expected to see a poll in this election that says the president is able to handle the economy than the republican challenger. that's what we've got. that looks very good for the president. it's not over yet. connell: i doubt that he's up as much as it says in some of those states or that he will win in all of those states. >> i was going to say the numbers are pretty widespread and consistent. anything could happen in the next 40 days, but if i were the romney campaign, i would be very concerned about those numbers in ohio, pennsylvania, florida, michigan. they're very scary numbers for governor romney. connell: thank you senator. i was going to say he may not win ohio by 10 but the trend has been in his favor. thank you senator for joining us. >> thanks for having me. dagen: senator, thank you very much. unrest and protests happening over there, we can take a look at pictures coming out of greece today, more money flooding into our markets right here. joining us no

roth at the u.n. we're going to be talking with mitt romney supporter senator john barrasso about what he says are the three things president obama needs to do in his speech today. first john berman has got a look at some of the other stories making news. >> good morning. >>> iran's president is trying to clarify what he meant when he said israel should be wiped off the map. an exclusive interview with cnn's piers morgan mahmoud ahmadinejad insists the literal interpretation of his comment is not what he meant. >> when we say to be wiped, we say for occupation to be wiped off from this world. for war-seeking to be wiped off and eradicated. the killing of women and children to be eradicated. and we propose the way, we propose the path. the path is to recognize the right of the palestinians to self-governance. >> ahmadinejad is scheduled to speak before the u.n. general assembly tomorrow on the jewish high holy day of yom kippur. this has many new yorkers outraged. there's even a house resolution circulating in congress condemning the timing of the address. >>> after president obama's u.

[applause] i have a bad reputation of being a straight. telling you what i think. all kidding aside. with picking paul ryan, what gov. romney did is he has given clear definition to all of the vague assertions he was making during his primary campaign. he talked a lot about a lot of the things paul ryan is talking about, but never with any detail. by picking paul ryan and buying out why he picked paul ryan, he picked him because he does represent the ideological -- how can i say this, the center of the republican party. he said, that is why i am taking paul ryan. now, we do not have to guess about what gov. romney means when he talks about medicare, social security, and education. it is almost like two incumbents running. paul ryan -- i mean this sincerely. paul ryan introduced a budget that past. it lays out in stark detail what they would
important speech the president gave in new york. host: how about mitt romney? can you assess from what you have heard and hear him write these past few months? is there a romney doctrine on foreign policy? how would you encapsulate it? guest: i don't know if there is a romney doctrine yet. governor romney is a very smart, successful person. my guess is that it is not the issue he wants to emphasize in the campaign. once the campaign to be about the economy and the unemployment rate. it is a difficult position for a republican to be running against a democrat who has a strong record on national security. that has been difficult for the romney campaign. i worked for republicans and democrats in various administrations, so i am not a political person. but it seems to me that republicans always try to run to the right of the democrats, and sometimes accused democrats of being weak on a national security. in this election you have president obama, who has taken us out of iraq, president obama who has waged a very tough war against al qaeda, has gone after the al qaeda leadership, notably osama
romney/derian tax plan could call to an end to long for a standing tax codes items. rich edson joins me now with who wins and who loses with the proposed plan. rich: democrats claim this will hit the middle class and cut taxes for wealthy americans. a fox business exclusive republican candidate paul ryan says wealthy americans like mitt romney will pay more. >> here's how it works. higher income people can use lots of tax shelters to shelter their income from taxation. close those tax shelters and more income is subject to taxation which allow us to lower tax rates for everybody. rich: some families and businesses will pay more because there will be fewer deductions. others will pay less with lower rates and in theory it balances out. for who is paying more or less we don't have those details from the romney campaign. they refuse to say how much the deductions they have to curb or even many to accomplish their goal. a senate source tells us the supercommittee discussed a rate cut and preliminary assumption show the cost of $1 trillion over ten years. congress has not officially run thos
